I picked Dehradun Shatabdi to travel from Delhi to Dehradun and vice versa. Train experience was good and no need to buy anything during the travel as they provide everything during the travel. Seats were comfortable. I am a vegetarian so I prefer veg food only.
I booked the tickets from the Redbus app. The tickets we got were of AC bus. It was a good experience to travel with Redbus. The bus seats to be honest were good. On the contrary, the shockers in the bus were not so good. It did not follow the schedule as per notified in the bus app but anyhow, I liked the journey.
Travelled to Mussoorie by car via Meerut. I think the best route is via Meerut, Roorkee and then Dehradun > Mussoorie. Do not take the left turn after crossing the Mcdonalds, Muzaffarnagar (comes after Meerut). The road it very bad after 15 kms. Go as mentioned before.
You can go by AC express from New Delhi Railway Station at 11:50 pm. Reached Dehradun at 6 am in the morning, the next day. You can easily get taxis for Mussorie from pre paid taxi stand near Dehradun Railway Station. You can also get shared taxis or buses. You will reach Mussorie in about an hour. It's a very nice and good train.
